WASHINGTON (AP) -- Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says the Mideast peace process that President Bush launched last year is the best chance yet to end the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.
She also says the policy should not be shelved by the incoming Obama administration.
Rice told The Associated Press in an interview Monday that the negotiations begun at the Annapolis conference last November have produced solid results even though officials won't meet a year-end deadline for a deal. She spoke before going to New York where the U.N. Security Council is expected on Tuesday to pass a resolution endorsing the Bush initiative.
